Unveiling the "Sixth Sense"

At the MIT Media Lab's new Fluid Interfaces Group, Pattie Maes researches the tools we use to work with information and connect with one another. This demo -- of research work spearheaded by Pranav Mistry -- was the buzz of TED**. It's a wearable device with a projector that paves the way for profound interaction with our environment. Although it is not much to do with community development yet, I wanted to include it in my blog because I am sure there will be development applications in the future - and anyway - it is fun.

** TED -- stands for "Technology, Entertainment, Design". It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader. The annual conference now brings together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes).
